    Well, I guess Kerry would do epee, since he's so tall. Can't think of any of the other 5 slots.

    Do any of these guys actually fence? That's would be worth votes from the millions of fencing fans in this country

    Sure, discussed before that Kerry was on the Yale Fencing Team? Yes, here's the reference to that: "In 1962, Kerry entered Yale University. There he majored in political science and graduated with a B.A. in 1966. He also played on the soccer, hockey, lacrosse, and fencing teams; in addition, he took flying lessons."

    I was thinking of people from the board here, but curiously enough, there aren't that many rabidly politcal epeeists, so I was having trouble filling that card.

    Here's my dream match up so far.

    Saber:
    Inq vs Peach

    Foil:
    Jeff vs Tireur

    Epee:
    ? vs ? Is this the middle of the road weapon? The weapon of libertarian romanticists?

    Epee - Kerry
    Foil - Ted
    Sabre - Hillary

    But geez this is an interesting one too. How about office versus office?

    Saber: Bush vs Kerry
    Epee: Edwards vs Cheney (I'd pay to see this one)
    Foil: Laura vs Teresa

    Hmmmm..... That would make some gooooood TV!

    I dunno - I don't want to see anything that would elevate Cheney's pulse... you'd have to have a cardiac team standing by.... Maybe he could be one of those "stand in one place" epee fencers.

    Ted K doing foil? Has he really lost enough of the excess target area? (See, I *can* poke fun at that side, too)

    I was thinking along the lines of rules and Senate Arms Committee memberships. I admit finding the right fencer for foil was difficult.

    For the board match-ups, it occurs to me that I cannot currently think of any conservative epee fencers. My instructor, a rabid conservative, absolutely hated epee...

    John Ashcroft lost to Mel Carnahan down in Missouri even though Mel died before the election! Bush then appointed the loser Ashcroft to the Attorney General position when he became president.

    I would definitely pay to see this. Moore couldn't last eight touches!

    Hillary Vs. Teresa = sabre that would be a real cat fight (though they are on the same side, can't we still dream? )

    How about a bout more befitting of MMs body type:

    Michael Moore vs. Dick Cheney in sumo!

    Would be quite a sight.

    Have a nice time!

    That's because conservatives care too much about rules (laws) and such to go for that epee with its devil-may-care-ne'er-do-well attitude.

    If we had the tourney.
    The republicans would need to wear weighted jackets and their touches only count everyother time because everyone knows the republicans are cheaters and didn't work hard to aquire their skill.
    The Democrats would get a 2 touch handicap, because they mean well.
